Last Monday 22 March I took the exam for the CKA certificate from the Linux Foundation, and I’m here to tell you about my experience of how I prepared for it and what to expect in the exam. I highly recommend that you also read a post from my colleague Fernando from a few months ago about the CKAD exam, which goes into much more detail about the aspects of these exams and helps you to pass them. I got some essential tips from reading his post!
Previous Experiences with Kubernetes
In all honesty, exactly a year ago I knew nothing about Kubernetes – it wasn’t because I had never worked with it, but that I wasn’t even clear about the concept of “container”. It’s true that this last year I’ve been working with this tool frequently (which undoubtedly helped me when preparing for the exam), but I think you need no more than a little previous experience.
